Welcome to the official website of the Rivers State Ministry of Health.

The Ministry is the organ of the Rivers State Government responsible for the formulation and implementation of health policies and programmes; health planning; regulation of health activities and maintenance of standards in the health sector at the State level.

The present administration has driven its agenda for Health which thrust is anchored on demonstrating political will for strengthening the various levels of care with an emphasis on infrastructural development (where needed); human capacity development; provision of funding for key programmes and projects; provision of a legislative framework for the reduction of out of pocket payment through the introduction of the Rivers State Contributory Health Protection Program (RIVCHPP), amongst others.

Our mission is to provide quality and standard health facilities and health services that are effective, efficient and affordable with suitably qualified, motivated and trained staff at every level of care making quality health care accessible to all especially vulnerable groups at government cost.


We are driven with the vision of improving the health status of Rivers citizens through the development of a strengthened and sustainable health care delivery system.
